A place with character and taste:
This place is called The Bar, or The Tile Bar, but I know it as WCOU. It is a classic, simple bar in the East Village of New York, and I have been frequenting it since... well the early 1980's. Neon clock, rock juke box, black & white checkered tile floor, original 80's teal tile in toilets, and 'Stranger Than Paradise' framed movie poster. Oh, beer nuts in bowls and Brooklyn Lager on tap!
Trixie the dog comes in with her owners on laundry night (so they say). She is the nicest dog and is quite clam with the happy hour crowd. I think she is the original hipster.
